The Clever Way HGTV's Hilary Farr Refreshes Outdated Bathroom Tile
Hilary Farr from HGTV's "Tough Love With Hilary Farr" had a brilliant idea for her clients’ bathroom: Instead of ripping all the old tiles off the walls, she opted to reglaze them.
Reglazing is a budget-friendly option and a fun project to DIY. The process involves using an epoxy or resin coat over the old tiles that, when cured, has a porcelain-like finish.
The simple solution costs much less than re-tiling, about $4-$10 per square foot. Plus, reglazed tile can last from 10 to 15 years, so it's a good investment for bathroom upgrades.
The tiles you reglaze should be in good condition, as the process won’t fix broken ones. Reglazing also works best on ceramic and porcelain tile rather than glass or natural stone.
